The Steel State of Dokansia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Heasco Dokkes with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.084 billion Dokansians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deathlon. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dokansian economy, worth 305 trillion Czechas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,617 Czechas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Populations of two-headed Tarantulas have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Heasco Dokkes Pics" has made Heasco Dokkes's mom a celebrity, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dokansia's national animal is the Tarantula, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.

Dokansia is ranked 222,938th in the world and 795th in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
